Atlanta Surgical Arts offers facial feminization surgery to individuals living throughout the Atlanta area and abroad.  Many patients from all over the country have seek out Dr. Huynh for his expertise in this highly specialized field of facial plastic surgery.

What is Facial Feminization Surgery?

Facial Feminization Surgery, or FFS, is a highly specialized area of surgery designed to transform a face with strong, masculine features into softer, more feminine look.  Many transgender women experience a great deal of social anxiety and acceptance in their personal and professional settings, a condition known as gender dysphoria.  Facial Feminization Surgery can help a trans woman openly expresses who she really is physically and builds confidence in her true gender identity.

Because FFS also enhances facial beauty, these procedures are increasingly becoming more desired by non-transgender women as well. Masculine facial features can make it difficult for many women to integrate into society and FFS helps women of all backgrounds to look and feel more beautiful.  During your personal consultation, Dr. Huynh will help you choose a procedure or combination of FFS procedures most suitable for you.

Facial Feminization Surgery Insurance Coverage

Certain health insurance providers have provisions in their policies that cover standards of care for transgender health. These benefits are often based on standard of care for Transgender People, that are described under the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH).  Every insurance provider and individual coverage is unique to the provider for what transgender standards of care are covered under a policy. Just because your insurance company has provisions for transgender care doesn’t mean that your individual plan will follow these guidelines. You should review your individual health insurance policy to determine if transgender care is covered or excluded.
